Alabama Theatre Series, “The Mighty Wurlitzer”

“The Mighty Wurlitzer”

Photography by Jenny Shain

The Might Wurlitzer, also known as “Big Bertha” is the only gold leafed Wurlitzer of it’s kind. Installed in 1927 for the opening of the “Showplace of The South,” this tremendous antique instrument can be seen and heard at The Alabama Theatre.

It’s design included eight sets of percussion, complete sound effects for silent films, and now has been expanded to blow 2,008 pipes! *Secret: many of which are hidden behind the theatre’s right curtain!*

The Alabama Theatre was titled “The State Historical Theatre” in 1993 and has undergone an incredible floor to ceiling restoration that included cleaning or replacing the vast areas of gold leaf paint.

For me, the Alabama Theatre will always hold a very special place in my heart. It reminds me of the good ole days, leaning over the balcony watching “White Christmas” with my family. Thinking about my grandad, “Gene,” climbing up the back alley fire escape to watch a movie here when he was a kid, too poor to buy a ticket. And thinking about one day when it was being built in 1927, my great grandmother was giving birth to my Papaw grandfather. I guess as an artist and a musician, it seems like the perfect place too. Showing that the fine arts do matter, that good design, great architecture, history, & family all come together to celebrate life & talent. I think that is really important. Don’t you?

See the Mighty Wurlitzer in action!

Photography by Jenny Shain


Forest Park in St. Louis
The Muny is the place where the World’s Fair was held in 1904 in St. Louis. Hence, “Meet Me in St. Louis.” The Muny is the World’s Largest Outdoor Musical Theatre! The Muny gazebo sits in front as the symbol for the Muny.
The name “The Muny” came years ago when the theatre was named the Municipal Theatre Association of St. Louis. It’s a an incredible place where artists come from all over the nation to create & perform the best musicals ever written!

“Night Fever, Night Fever!”

Red Fox

"NIGHT FEVER" By Jenny Fox Shain

The Fox Theatre, built in 1927, by architect Howard Crane
“The final departure from his earlier designs were his twin Siamese Byzantine masterpieces built in St. Louis and Detroit for William Fox. When finished in 1929, reporters noted that the new Fox theatres were “awe-inspiring, fashioned after…old India, bewildering in their richness and dazzling in their appointments…striking a note that reverberated around the architectural and theatrical worlds.”

This is one of my many works of art hanging in “Cafe Ventana” near St. Louis University:

3919 West Pine Blvd, STL, 63108. Near Forest Park Parkway, beside the West part of SLU.
